The Newstart unemployment benefit is currently $282 per week - far too little to support people through tough times. Newstart hasn’t increased in real terms in 25 years, while the cost of living, especially housing and utilities has gone through the roof. The low rate increases poverty and inequality in our community and makes it harder for people to get back into work.
Come to this meeting to learn about the issue and discuss how we can achieve change to support people and families in our community.
